A mother with an explosive secret. A daughter who spills it. The rookie lawyer with something to prove.
Cleveland lawyer Casey Cort is desperate to get her law practice off life support. When a federal judge seeks the young attorney out for her expertise in juvenile court, Casey thinks she’s found a lifeline.
Frustrated with Cuyahoga County’s arbitrary handling of abuse and neglect cases, Casey’s determined to keep the judge’s daughter from the clutches of foster care. But Casey is unprepared for a system that snubs its nose at justice.
With a client prone to self-sabotage, can Casey redeem herself by saving them both?
Judged is the first book in the high-stakes Casey Cort legal thriller series. If you like strong women, shocking political corruption, and gripping stories ripped from the headlines, you’ll love Aime Austin’s explosive debut.
Not the book I was expecting.
Boring read. Jumped around from character and time to try to tell as story but in the end the story failed to seduce my interests. I did finish the read but equally disappointed I the ending.
